Christmas crafts

It's December - time to start working on Christmas crafts!

For Chace's first Christmas I am attempting my first "sock" pattern to make him a stocking. So far so good, though I badly underestimated the amount of yarn I'll need. Using a pattern from Ravelry - pattern is a knit/ felted one, "Ella's stocking" by Mary Kennedy - using MaggiKnits Chunky Merino and Paton's Classic Merino. It's a "non-wrapping" heel pattern, so has been a pretty easy way to learn sock knitting. Here are some pictures of the work in progress, more when I've gone back to the yarn store and can get a little further along :)
